Family Saturday at Blue Star Contemporary

The weather for this weekend is looking like it’s going to be gorgeous. It’s the perfect time to grab your kids and head over to Experience Blue Star!



This weekend at Blue Star Contemporary, it’s all about getting your kids interested in art with some FREE hands-on activities! Saturday, April 14th is Family Saturday, an event that focuses on the current exhibitions on display. This day is all about bringing together local artists and community organizations to offer creative activities. Works on view become the inspiration for art-making and kids learn how to look at and understand contemporary art better through fun activities.



Activities include:

MY FIESTA MEDAL – Led by the BSC MOSAIC Student Artist Program. It’s Fiesta time! Make your own one-of-kind Fiesta Medal.

LANDSCAPE OF 1775 – Led by Common Currents exhibiting artist Melissa Maschke. Join us in weaving a colorful landscape to celebrate 300 years in San Antonio! The weaving project, inspired by the year 1775, shares a story of the land and the establishment of the Spaniards. Did the Europeans settle here for Gold, God, and Glory? With some yarn and imagination, weave what you think is essential to the story.

HISTORICAL PORTRAITS OF POWER: HEADDRESS COLLAGE – Led by Common Currents exhibiting artist Karl Frey. Create your own historically inspired portrait decorated with personal flair and fantasy.  Empowered by the multicultural headdresses used to assert identity and ceremony throughout the globe, you are invited to create a portrait of power with collaged headdresses overflowing with your own choice of textures, colors, symbols, and absurdity.

EXHIBITION SCAVENGER HUNT – Guests participate in a self-led scavenger hunt of our current exhibitions! See if you can find all of the items.

Bring the whole family out this Saturday from 1-4pm to join in on the fun!
